If 127.* is one of the nameserver addresses then no further addresses
are included.  This suits most systems where 127.* is the address of a
local caching nameserver.

If you really need different behavior then please edit the script
/etc/resolvconf/update.d/libc.  Note that this is a conffile.

Specifically, comment out the line:

    case "$1" in (127.*) return 0 ;; esac

in the function "uniquify_nameserver_list".

The relevant changelog snippet:

resolvconf (1.32) unstable; urgency=low

  * /etc/resolvconf/update.d/libc:
    + Truncate nameserver list after 127.*
